If this is less than .05 (or whatever alpha is) it is significant, and we the reject null

df = (n1 – 1) + (n2 – 1) = (165 - 1) + (120 -1) = 283

A survey was conducted to see whether men or women

superintendents make more money. The null hypothesis is

a. men make more money

b. women make more money

c. no difference between amount of money made

d. there is a difference between the amount of money made


Mgmt 276 statistical inference in management spring 2013

  • A survey was conducted to see whether men or women

  • superintendents make more money. If the null hypothesis was rejected we will conclude that

  • a. men make more money

  • b. women make more money

  • no difference between amount of money made

  • d. there is a difference between the amount of money made


Mgmt 276 statistical inference in management spring 2013

  • A survey was conducted to see whether men or women

  • superintendents make more money. A Type I error would be

  • a. claiming men make more money, when they don’t

  • b. claiming women make more money, when they don’t

  • claiming no difference between amount of money made, when there is a difference

  • d. claiming there is a difference between the amount of money made, when there is no difference

Mgmt 276 statistical inference in management spring 2013

A t-test was conducted, which of the following best describes

the results:

a. t(21) = 2.02; p < 0.05

b. t(21) = 2.02; n.s.

c. t(37) = 5.0; p < 0.05

d. t(37) = 5.0; n.s

Let’s try one


Mgmt 276 statistical inference in management spring 2013

A t-test was conducted, with a two tail test was there a significant difference?

a. No, because 5.0 is not bigger than 6.89

b. Yes, because 5.0 is bigger than 1.68.

c. Yes, because 5.0 is bigger than 1.37

d. Yes, because 5.0 is bigger than 2.02

Let’s try one


Mgmt 276 statistical inference in management spring 2013

Which is true

a. p < 0.05

b. p < 0.01

c. p < 0.001

d. All of the above

c. three-tailed test

d. not enough information

Note the change in the problem


Mgmt 276 statistical inference in management spring 2013

Study Type 1: Confidence Intervals

Comparing Two Means?

Use a t-test

Study Type 2: t-test

We are looking to compare two means

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4WQhJHGQB4


Mgmt 276 statistical inference in management spring 2013

We are looking to compare two means

Study Type 2: t-test

Study Type 3: One-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)

Comparing more than two means


Mgmt 276 statistical inference in management spring 2013

Study Type 3: One-way ANOVA

Single Independent Variable comparing more than twogroups

Single Dependent Variable (numerical/continuous)

Used to test the effect of the IV on the DV

Ian was interested in the effect of incentives for girl scouts on the number

of cookies sold. He randomly assigned girl scouts into one of three groups.

The three groups were given one of three incentives and looked to see who

sold more cookies. The 3 incentives were 1) Trip to Hawaii, 2) New Bike

or 3) Nothing. This is an example of a true experiment

How could we

make this a

quasi-experiment?

Independent Variable: Type of incentive

Levels of Independent Variable: None, Bike, Trip to Hawaii

Dependent Variable: Number of cookies sold

Levels of Dependent Variable: 1, 2, 3 up to max sold

Between participant design

Causal relationship: Incentive had an effect – it increased sales

Single Independent Variable comparing more than two groups

Single Dependent Variable (numerical/continuous)

The three groups were given one of three incentives and looked to see who

sold more cookies. The 3 incentives were 1) Trip to Hawaii, 2) New Bike

or 3) Nothing. This is an example of a true experiment

Dependent

variable is always quantitative

Sales per

Girl scout

Sales per

New

Bike

None

Trip

None

In an ANOVA, independent variable is qualitative

(& more than two groups)


Mgmt 276 statistical inference in management spring 2013

One-way ANOVA versus Chi Square

Be careful you are not designing a Chi Square

If this is just frequency you may have a problem

This is an

Chi Square

Total Number

of Boxes Sold

Sales per

Girl scout

This is an ANOVA

New

Bike

None

Trip

Hawaii

New

Bike

None

Trip

Hawaii

These are just frequencies

These are just frequencies

These are means

Writing Assignment

  • To prepare for our ANOVA Project - Due April 11th

  • There are five parts

  • 1. A one page report of your design (includes all of the information from the writing assignment)

    • Describe your experiment: what is your question / what is your prediction?

    • State your Independent Variable (IV), how many levels there are, and the operational definition

    • State your Dependent Variable (DV), and operational definition

    • How many participants did you measure, and how did you recruit (sample) them

    • Was this a between or within participant design (why?)

  • 2. Gather the data

    • Try to get at least 10 people (or data points) per level

    • If you are working with other students in the class you should have 10 data points per level for each member of your group

  • 3. Input data into Excel (hand in data)

  • 4. Complete ANOVA analysis hand in ANOVA table

  • 5. Statement of results and include a graph of your means
